French Milled

Once cured, the bars are sliced into long strips, put through the food processor to shred and melted a second time.  This is the "milling" process.

Curing

Each soap batch is numbered and dated then set on drying racks to cure for at least 4-6 weeks.

Pasteurize & Freeze

Their luxurious milk is pasteurized by heating it to 160 degrees.  After cooling, the milk is frozen in one and a half pound portions.


Pour and set

Once mixed to perfection, the soap is poured into tubs to set up for at least 24 hours.

Milked by Hand

Our sweet Alpine dairy goats are milked by hand twice a day.

More Curing

Once set, the soaps are removed from the molds and placed on racks to dry.

Molds & Freezer

During the second melt, scents are added and the hot soap is poured into special molds.  Those molds go in the freezer for a few hours to set up.

Heat, Melt & Mix

When it comes time to make the initial batch of soap, the goat milk and lye are mixed in the sink while the oils are heated on the stove.  When both mixtures meet specific temperatures they are combined and blended.  If the milk is not frozen, it will burn when mixed with the lye.
